William Edward Dixon "Teddy" Graham (June 30, 1904 in Owen Sound, Ontario – January 11, 1979) was a professional ice hockey defenceman. Dixon played ten seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Chicago Black Hawks, Montreal Maroons, Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Eagles, Boston Bruins and New York Americans.

He played for his hometown Owen Sound Greys when they won their first Memorial Cup as Canadian junior champions in 1924. Ten years later, he and old Greys teammate Cooney Weiland were reunited on the roster of the Detroit Red Wings, who went to the Stanley Cup final in that 1933–34 season.

Graham made his professional debut in 1926 with Eddie Livingstone's Chicago Cardinals. After the team folded from the competition of the NHL, Graham moved cross-town to the Black Hawks. He played the next five seasons with Chicago, then moved to the Maroons, Red Wings, Eagles, Bruins and Americans before retiring in 1938. Graham subsequently became an ice hockey referee.
